f:135 -    Listening to the Holy Quran while doing other things
Country : England,
Name : Muhammad Ghouse Khan
Question:     Assalamalaikum wa rahmatullah! Mufti Sahab, can I play the recording of the Holy Quran when busy in other tasks, like reading etc.  Please clarify about other tasks like while at the shop etc.

Answer:     Listening to or reciting the Holy Quran is indeed an act of great reward.  We should regularly recite it and listen to it in such a way that we keep in mind the greatness of the Word of Allah Most High and listen to it with utmost concentration and fervor.

Still, if while reading something or doing some other work, you want to listen to the Holy Quran with the intention that the heart and the soul remain in communion with the Lord, it is allowed, provided there is no disrespect of the Holy Quran and if while listening to it, there is a need to talk to somebody, then the recording should be switched off.

And Allah Most High knows best.
